Veterans Mesothelioma 5k Charity Run
We invite you to join us for the 2nd Annual Veterans Mesothelioma 5k Charity Run October 2nd! Our goal is to raise funds to aid in building awareness of this deadly illness that has impacted the lives of so many military veterans and their families.
Mesothelioma cancer is an uncommon but highly aggressive form of cancer that afflicts people who were exposed to asbestos. Many veterans who were exposed to asbestos during their time of service are now suffering from mesothelioma cancer. This 5K is dedicated to them, and in continuing the fight against this deadly illness. Here are the details of the 5k below.
